fire proof

October 27, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

This is the rear entrance of what used to be the Northwestern Hotel. What it was northwest of is a bit of a mystery to me. I suppose it’s northwest of a whole lot of stuff. Like, say, West Virginia. But I’m guessing they had something more specific in mind.

Regardless of where it’s located in terms of the compass, the original owners were clearly delighted that the building was fireproof. I can see where that would give the Northwestern a sizable marketing edge over all those hotels that were more likely to burst into flame.

Now it’s just offices. But still, apparently, fireproof.
